Assignment for February 16th

Because of this week’s snow day, we’re sticking with last week’s assigned reading: chapters 1 and 11 in Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power and discussing news in the Amsterdam News (the one that comes out today). See details in the post from last week. Wilson can be tough reading so you have to go slowly and take notes. Pay closest attention to the last parts of the chapter where he proposes solutions to issues raised.
Some important logistical details:

  • Be sure to sign up for the class text message service! It helps me quickly contact everyone in case class is cancelled (like today) or there are important last minute changes. Details on the syllabus.
  • Keep investigating options for doing your fieldwork. It’s a required part of the course and there’ll be assignments based on it. Investigate the options on the syllabus and/or do your own research on possible options based on the guidelines. You can email me questions.
    Take note of the following two community events posted below. Have a good week and see you next Thursday.
